ssh and IP logging question

#1
Sorry if this has been asked before, I couldn't find the answer in the threads I found.

2 separate questions for you:

I have dropbear-ssh installed, but I'm struggling to find what password I need to use for root:

Code:
ssh root@ravhumax.local
root@ravhumax.local's password:
Permission denied, please try again.
root@ravhumax.local's password:
Permission denied, please try again.
root@ravhumax.local's password:
Permission denied (publickey,password).
ravi@RPC-UBUNTU1:~$
Code:
Editing /mod/etc/dropbear/passwd
root:x:0:0:root:/mod:/bin/sh
I'm not that clued up on linux password files. What is the default root password. Also - could or should I change it, or will it break the WebIf?

2nd question:

Is there a log file I can look at to see who is logging in via the WebIf and from what IP address? It would be useful, especially if I open the WebIf up to the internet on my router with port forwarding. Info on any other log files would also be appreciated.

thanks!
